Its Christmas again! Jingle bells, jingle bells......

It is going to be a very hectic evening for me, its Christmas eve! People from all walks of life will be celebrating and partying from night till dawn, and I expect the city streets to be jampacked especially throughout the long stretch of Orchard Road where the road will be closed and taxis will be mostly occupied outside of these areas and there will be very long queues of passengers everywhere waiting for cabs.
Every year during the Christmas season, taxi drivers are all out in full swing and wishing "Merry Christmas!" to all our passengers. This is also the time when we start collecting our year end bonuses. Throughout my years of driving a taxi, earnings during this period can spiral up to twice or even three times what we normally earn on ordinary days. I will be driving till the wee hours of the morning, maybe stopping work around 6.30am then hand over the cab to my relief driver for his turn to do the rounds. As expected I know its going to be a very tiring day for me from 5.00pm onwards and I will definitely need to have enough rest to last the long weekend ahead. There will be plenty of revelry, very noisy and loud singing passengers like in past years and its going to be another very exciting evening, it gets more intense each time. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
